Indian journal of physical anthropology and human genetics (Indian J Phys Anthropol Hum Genet)
Indian Journal of Physical Anthropology and Human Genetics is an international forum for issues concerning Indian Physical Anthropology and Human Genetics in Particular and other allied sciences in general. The main focus of the journal is India. It also welcomes original research papers and brief reports providing comparative perspectives or offering comments on significant theoretical issues from all over the world. The journal is expected to serve as a medium for scholarly studies devoted mainly to biological aspects of human populations as regards genetics, evolution, ecology, demography, growth, physiology, biochemistry, pharmacology, disease patterns and behaviour of individuals comprising them.

ABSTRACT: In forensic investigations, the task of identification of a person from photograph is not uncommon.But to identify a person from a photograph and to pinpoint its source or is a very tedious job. It requires a lot of practical experience and in-depth knowledge of theoretical concepts. Before carrying out any confirmatory tests, preliminary tests are first performed to narrow down the area of search. In forensic studies regarding facial identification, most of the researchers are working on the former but not much work has been reported on the later. So, keeping the same thing in mind, the present study has been carried out. In this study, the photographs of 100 individuals of Northern- Indian population were collected and analyzed to find out a method which can prove to be helpful in identifying the ethnic origin of a person whose photograph is in question. In this investigation, the landmarks, Ectocanthion (Ec), Endocanthion (En), Alare (Al), Chelion (Ch), Gnathion (Gn) and Trichion (Tr), were selected for the study and 18 different angles-∠AOC, ∠ACO, ∠OAC, ∠AOD, ∠ADO, ∠OAD, ∠AOE, ∠AEO, ∠OAE, ∠BIC, ∠BCI, ∠IBC, ∠BID, ∠BDI, ∠IBD, ∠BIE, ∠BEI and ∠IBE on the left and right sides of the face were measured. The study can prove to be of great use in cases where no information is available about the identity of the person and it can help in narrowing down the area of search.Indian journal of physical anthropology and human genetics 08/2013; 32(2):229-235.

Article: Salivary Agglutinins in Gonds[Show abstract] [Hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: Saliva in the form of stains is encountered as physical evidence in many cases such as anonymous letters, secret writing, sexual assault, rape, murder, disputed paternity, cigarette butt ends, etc. If analysed properly saliva stains can not only help in the elimination of the innocents but also in the actual identification of a specific individual. Some work on the presence or absence of salivary agglutinins has been done by Chattopadhyay and Ganeson (1983). The frequency of persons having salivary agglutinins varies from one population to another. Since there is no report on salivary agglutinins on the Gonds, it was thought desirable to undertake the Present Investigation.Indian journal of physical anthropology and human genetics 01/2012; 31(1-ISSN 0378-8156):123-125.

ABSTRACT: The biocultural approach has been the essence of the anthropology discipline, wherein humans are studied as biological, social and cultural beings in relation to their environment. There is a dynamic relationship between our biology encoded in our genetic and neural evolution and our culture, but increasingly also projected outwards onto the environment, which we harness and transform to our perceived benefit. Humans have the capacity to change the environment. The present human species evolved in Africa and then migrated to the other parts of the world and have expanded their numbers there. The species has undergone modifications due to genic-environment interactions over the last 200,000 years. A relatively shorter span of the history of agriculture over the last 10,000 years has re-sculpted ecologies and supported a human population growing at a rapid pace. Biological anthropologists have discovered that introduction of agriculture has been a major factor in evolutionary selection of our present genetic make-up. Biocultural approach is an area that binds biological- and cultural- anthropology. The bio-cultural model has its connection with the adaptability model in which the human-environment interaction is the focus of attention to understand human biological variation and/or variability. A large number of human traits have been studied following this model. During the course of human adaptation to different environmental factors, a number of independent mutations occurred in many human societies. Anthropologists and human geneticists have emphasized that introduction of dairy and consumption of fresh milk in human food also led to triggering genetic adaptation in many parts of the world. There is relationship between health and racial groups. A number of diseases have been explored from this perspective of genetics and environment interactions. Urbanization, globalization, westernization and affluence have changed life style of peoples. It has led to the rise of diseases of civilization. Obesity is the condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to a degree that health and function are negatively affected. It is new in human evolutionary history, having been essentially nonexistent until approximately 10,000 years ago. New pathogens are evolving. This paper explores biocultural diversity in human populations principally from the perspective of evolutionary genetics, especially in relation to environment, disease and adaptation.Indian journal of physical anthropology and human genetics 01/2012; 31(2):225-254.
